The history of the engine is connected to the legendary MTZ-80/82 tractor, the production of which began in 1974. Initially, the D-240 engine was installed on these machines. Later it was replaced by the more advanced 243rd, which to this day is the heart of the tractors of the Minsk plant. Currently, this engine is the most massive one in the territory of the former USSR. Diesel became the basis for a number of modifications differing in equipment and installed units, and therefore operational characteristics.
